“Clockworks” is a precise machine that assembles two different parking systems and various public spaces into a vertical sandwich construction inserted into urban Bangkok and conected to the BTS and MRT networks.
The open structure articulates the double helix ramp system of the lower levels and the vertical car elevators of the upper levels with entry, lobby, bar, and event space in-between. dfwforhire.com Economically sustainable, tapered thin concrete plates float beyond the vertical structure, corners cut on alternate floors to reduce the construction materials to a minimum.
Electric car docking stations and rooftop wind turbines with urban farming initiate social and environmental sustainability.
